i suggested to david axelrod, how he compares to barack obama in 2008. is that possible? >> this will be a very different kind of convention. i'm sure an attempt to have some uplift and sense of hope for the future. the president is burdened in this by his record as your entire record with both david axel rod and mayor villaraigosa indicated. as you noted in both cases particularly in the case of david axelrod it always came back to the attack on the other side. a big part of what we will hear this week and central argument you will hear from many of the speakers, certainly from bill clinton, all the republicans want to do is take us back to the policies that got us in this mess before. a lot wrong with that argument perhaps but i think it is perhaps an effective argument and one that the republicans have not yet found a way really to counter. >> chris: is hope and change and the promise of denver of 2008 dead? >> i don't think so but i think it will be a different convention obviously. obama already is talking about the republican convention as a rerun. you have lived through be
